this winter

break out of your routine.

Welcome back! See what’s cooking for winter.

It’s time to try something new and really start to unlock the gastronomic potential that this campus has. Take a walk up to PCV and try out a new-to-you dining venue and some of the latest offerings from Einstein Bros. Bagels, Jamba or Village Market. Try some of the myriad local, or student-made products. While you’re at it take the chance to learn a new, awe-inducing skill that will impress your friends, family and relations during a Cooking in the Canyon class. These hour-long classes happen twice a month and will give you a hands-on culinary experience, and teach you how to make a variety of dishes from homemade pasta to party appetizers. Let’s get out there this quarter and explore what the campus has to offer.
